Well, seeing as it's all over the news now, it looks like I can talk about my latest mission, at least a little bit.

Sally and I were sent on Friday to one of the colonies where rumors of unrest had been received. This colony in particular is overcrowded and, like many colonies, in a poor financial situation. The main "cause" of the uprising is said to be trading issues, but I would tend to believe that it was more of a cover for general unrest.

Thankfully, the riots were easily quelled before anything too serious could happen. It was a shining moment for the Preventers, though I would have rather have had it never happen in the first place even if our reputation gets a polish. I don't like fighting.

Because of the success of the mission, I have a few days leave. I'm around L-2 at the moment and could probably squeeze in some visits. It would be nice to have a social life again.

But right now, I need to sleep.

I would like to say "congratulations", but I'm not sure if that's the right word.

Now comes the political mess in which everyone claims they know why it started and how we can prevent it from happening again.

Thank you and Sally for your hard work. It must be tough taking so much on your shoulders.

Are you feeling alright? I'm sure it will be very nice to have a few days off.

I'm glad everything turned out alright.

I have never been more glad to not be a politician than at times like this. Nothing is more complicated than politics, except perhaps for religion.

It's not all the tough though, really. It's our jobs and something we feel strongly about doing. That said, I am definitely going to enjoy this time off.

Politics isn't that difficult for me, but then again I was taught how to think like a politician without actually being one since I was little. Religion, on the other hand, I think I'll stay far away from.

As long as you enjoy yourself, that's important.

Well, hey, it's good that the Preventers have earned themselves a good name, and the bystanders at the riots haven't been hurt too badly, right?

That is certainly very good, but not having the riot take place in the first place would have been better.

I hope you're doing alright, Noin.

I'm living on L2, if you need a place to stay.

That would certainly be nice. I really haven't seen you much since Peacemillion (and at that time you weren't exactly in the best condition for socializing)

You're welcome to drop in whenever you want.

Heh, yeah. Pain killers don't really make me the best conversationalist.

I can probably arrange a visit in the next day or two. Right now, I'm still rather sleep-deprived.

I'll go ahead and start fixing up the guest room for you.

And yes. Sleep as long as you need to.
